Puerto Rico is a blend of Old World European charm with an American flavor. Along with a variety of attractions that celebrate and honor our Hispanic heritage, which dates back to colonial times, the Island also offers many fun-filled ways to absorb the beauty of its natural surroundings, ranging from towering mountain peaks and lush rainforest to beautiful country meadows and pristine beaches. According to the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, these are the top ten attractions of the island: El Yunque National Forest, Fort San Felipe del Morro, The Arecibo Observatory, Bacardí Rum Distillery, San José Church, Río Camuy Cave Park, Porta Coeli Church, Tibes Ceremonial Park, Caguana Ceremonial Park.
Puerto Rico stands firmly behind its environmental policy, in part, because its enchanting beauty coexists with one of the world’s highest population densities. But Puerto Rico is also home to El Yunque, the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System. Visitors to Puerto Rico can enjoy a host of eco-tourism activities such as: cave exploration in the North, reef or underwater cave diving in the West, scuba and snorkeling in the East, sea kayaking, exploring mangroves, bird watching, kayaking in three bioluminescent bays and mountain hiking amidst tropical foliage.
